Just for Fun…


Christmas is almost here and I thought I’d share an app that’s easy to use and, if you use the basic characters, it’s free. 


It’s called Capture the Magic-Catch Santa and it’s available in the App Store for Apple. It may be available for Android, but don’t know. 


I took the photo above at Kickerillo-Mischer last week and used this app to add Santa. You can use any photo from your gallery or take a photo using the camera in the app. 


Then just add a sticker. I added this Elf watching Larry working on our cookies. 



There are a lot of apps for the holidays but what I like about this one is it’s easy to use!

Very cute, Kathy. Unlike you, I'm not an "app kind of girl" and only have the ones I absolutely need on my phone. I also don't play with photographs or take them very often... but I always enjoy seeing yours.

Good morning Kathy,

Good morning Kathy - Yummy - I would like to join that elf for what looks like chocolate chip cookies.  If you still lived in Delray I might have asked for some.😉

Kathy, that is very cool. What a great present to give to a small one who still believes in Saint Nick.

Don't have any believer kids in the immediate family anymore although the 13 year old grandson did tell me a few days ago that he'll believe in Santa until he reaches 18 so that Papa Ed will continue to get him special presents

Cookies, Larry is doing a good job at making the Cookies.  Wish I could be on the Zoom Meeting but will be flying to Ohio to spend Christmas with the Grand kids.  Take notes.
